On draught at Whole Foods. Lots of smoke and some nice fruitiness. Taste is sweet with a little bitterness.medium bodied. Really awesome.
GABF 2014. This was decent and I respect any brewer willing to try the style. The smoke is much lighter in the flavor and aroma than I would like for my tastes, but I do not perceive any flaws. Dr_MedievAle (215) - Alabama, USA - OCT 6, 2014

"Wow...NOT seeing the lowball scores here (though maybe they were working out the kinks in 2006). This beer was great. The smokiness and malts reminded me of Sclenkerla beers, though not quite in Urbocks league. Pretty nice, though. Balance of smoke and malt is wonderful. A bbq beer all the way."

Tap at the brewery. Clear yellow color. Aroma of white pepper. Taste is lager-like. Smoke is subtle. Average Pyrmir (6210) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2013
On tap. Slightly hazy yellow with white head. Aroma smoked in a pleasant way and not much else. Taste is malty with a nice smoked touch, low bitterness.

Fantastic smoky aroma; amber appearance with a frothy off-white head; light, but distinctive smoky flavor over a light bitterness; relatively silky on the palate with a sharp fizz and quick finish; overall, a very good representation of what it claims to be--a smoked lager

A golden amber lager with a thin white head. In aroma, smooth biscuit malt with nice peaty notes, light mineral notes, nice. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with fruity notes, maple, and light peated malt, nice. On tap at Aces and Ales tenaya. rainmaker2152 (55) - - SEP 18, 2013
A very drinkable smoked lager. Smoked flavor is strong up front but the finish is far more like a light Marzen. A fine novelty. BeerandBlues2 (13814) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Tap. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is smoked malt, ham, and earthy hops. Flavor is malt and smoke dominant with a sweet finish and a clean lager character. Medium body and carbonation.
